  1. I need to check with a work colleague who recently bought a bunch of sod from a sod farm in terms on what he paid. I think it was something like $.30 per square foot so you'd be looking at around 700 bucks for the sod. Not sure about delivery cost. He picked his up right from the farm. I could pick it up. The front yard is in great shape so really I just need to hammer out the yard. I may hire two ppl to do the grass shaving.
  2. I appreciate the advice. I think this is the direction I'm going to go. It's a smallish front yard 20x20 a decent size back yard 40x40. I want to do it right so that I only need to do it once.
  3. 75% is a lot of weeds. Probably best to just wait until the fall, rototiller the whole yard and reseed or sod if you can afford it from scratch. I don't really know the difference. If I rototullier do I just reseed immediately thereafter or do I reseed in the spring of the next year? I considered resodding but is like a 10k party. I would prefer to go a less expensive direction.Rototieller is less true?
  4. My wife and I bought our first house last month. The yard is beautiful but we have some issues with weeds and large bare spots. I would say that 75% of the yard although green is weeds rather than grass. I want to eliminate the weeds but have no idea where to start and don't want to hire a company. This is our first experience with a yard we own so I would like a permanent solution even if it takes time. Also we have a dog so I don't want to go nuclear on it.
  5. It's fortuitous that you posted this. I think it's bad everywhere right now. I drove by my new house in Cheverly (PG/MD) and the water was coming out of the down spots like a wide open hose. The sump pump was also pushing out some water but not nearly as bad. I have standing water all over the yard. I need to hire someone to extend my down spots further away from the house. fml
  6. I have a ton of movies and shows on DVD. Seinfeld, Friends, many popular movies from the 80s through today. Also, have xbox 360 games, bioshock 1 and 2, also have red dead redemption and arkam asylum. Also have a Wii that I'd love to move. Includes Mario Kart and some other games. I'm open to pretty much anything other than tools. Shot me a PM.
  7. can one use the pokerstars app to play?
  8. Bioshock 2 is more of the same as 1, just better looking. You'd probably have more fun playing A.A. at this point. Thanks. At this point you are right. I'm not really having fun playing Bioshock 1. I just need to finish it.Finally finished it tonight. Beating Fountaine was too easy. But the lead up was good. Building the big daddy suit and protecting little sisters was fun.

  10. I restarted Bioshock after finishing infinite. I love infinite and before infinite I had enjoyed Bioshock (even though I never finished it). Now I remember why I didn't finish it. If I have one complaint about the game it is absolutely the length. At time's it is such a grind. I'll fight my way through it but can anyone opine on part II. I have Bioshock II and Arkam Asylum. I want to know which one I should play next.
  11. I restarted Bioshock I and it is scary as ####. I had forgotten how scary it was.
  12. I played through Bioshock and sold it already. Was the scene from the commercials where they are gonna hang Elizabeth in the game?
  13. I just finished BS Infinite. Should I: Finish Red Dead Redemption or play skyrim from the beginning. Instruct me!
  14. This seems far more geared to people who commute to DC than to people who live in DC (or even in the closer suburbs). For instance, DC taxis haven't used the Zones for three years, and I almost never worry about Route 50 or I-270, much less the road configuration in Loudoun county. I think that stems from the fact that most that live near the city consider themselves part of it as well even though they are either in Va or Md.But yeah I get your point on what was pointed out and I honestly didn't know the taxi situation since I've only used them a few times. Not telling them where you want to go until you are inside the cab is critical. I've had a cab pull off as I was getting in b/c I said Silver Spring MD to the question "where you go".
  15. I use a 2x4. You only have to hit 'em once and they learn not to get caught.Just start breaking fingers. That'll get their attention quickly. If you get one that's giving you static, he probably thinks he's a real cowboy, so you gotta break that son of a ##### in two. If you wanna know something and he won't tell you, cut off one of his fingers. The little one. Then tell him his thumb's next. If your kidding isn't deathly afraid of you by the time he is 5 you effed up big time. All kidding aside, if a parent can't control a kid by any other means besides severe corporal punishment something bigger is going on.

  17. This thread is scary. WTF would really hit their kid with a belt or any other object?
  18. I'm glad you liked BDT and Rasika. What'd you have at BDT? Did you try the marrow appetizer?
  19. I just finished bio shock infinite and it was an aswesome ending. Overall one of the best games I've played. I may go back and finish the original Bioshock as I gave it up midway through.
  20. It isn't about being ashamed of your naked body. Its about being part of an industry that makes your body an object. Playboy is porn, its not art, its not glorifying beauty, its porn plain and simple. Soft porn but still porn. Also once its done you can't take it back. Just like sharing naked pics on texting that get shared. It's not a great way to have yourself taken seriously.Do you think any gives a #### what Peyton Manning thinks about Tibet's freedom? Or Tom Brady's thoughts on free speech in North Korea? And those are the white guys. If professional sports don't objectify males than Playboy, porn generally, doesn't objectify women. This last statement is obviously nonsense. The truth of the matter is that Sports objectify the body and so does Playboy - and that should be fine. There is no shame in using your body, any part of your body, to make money. Absurd. Sport is about competition, focus, concentration, striving to be the best, learning to work with others, sportsmanship, patience, overcoming your own doubts, not being afraid to win, overcoming fears, working hard to get yourself into your best physical shape, among other very positive things. Playing sports frequently creates better people. The people at the pinnacle of their sports are compensated handsomely because we all sit in awe of the things they can do that we can't. Some women have nice cans and we whack off to naked pics of them. Yeah lots of parallels there. Your conclusion supports my premise. At its very core pro sports, like porn/playboy, are about getting paid to do something that others can not do. Not everyone can pose for playboy. Not everyone can make a professional porn. Just like not everyone can dunk a basketball or catch a baseball. But at their very core both porn and pro sports are an exploitation of a physical gift/skill. There is no difference between Peyton Manning's inherent, god given if you will, skill to throw a football and Jane Doe's ability to model. Both require "competition, focus, concentration, striving to be the best, patience, overcoming your own doubts, not being afraid to [suceed], overcoming fears, working hard to get yourself into your best physical shape, among other very positive things."

  22. It isn't scapegoating, he didn't do his job as AD. If the buck stopped with him, then I'd agree. The president signed off on the earlier sanction, though, so scapegoating is definitely part of this. How is it scapegoating? If the president knew of the conduct and didn't fire him the president should be fired.
